Re: My 1987 Johnson 40 HP VTEC Outboard

When I go foward I hear a clanking type noise. If I am going in reverse, I do not. Of course going forward is faster.

If the motor is out of gear and I remove the cover and accelerate the motor, it appears their is no noise.

The Lower Unit has fresh gear lube and the water pump pumps water.

The shift cable may be out of adjustment.  Or your lower is going bad.
